Q: Do my units of measure change everywhere in the app when I update my preferences?

A: No. Changing the units of measure in your preferences will change the units you see in the Portfolio Trends tab and in the exportable files you can download in the Reports tab. However, when you open a meter, you will still see usage in the original unit used for that meter, regardless of what you set as your unit of measure in your preferences. 

As indicated above, the unit of spend does change to reflect your preferences, even when viewing an individual meter.
